Mark Fowler has never been the same since he was elected leader of the London Perl Mongers. The strain manifests itself mainly in releasing various [] modules [] to CPAN, giving talks [], and use of the Trelane nick on for endless procrastination. Doctors are still seeking a cure.

Wait three months for a journal entry and then two come along at once.

I've been playing a lot with UTF8 and the UTF8 flag a lot recently and I ended up creating This script that creates this list of what happens when you toggle on and off the UTF8 flag for various bytes, print the output to a utf8 filehandle and Devel::Peek Dump the scalar to see what Perl is actually storing. Fun huh?
